Our divisions should never be discussed except in the presence of those who have already come to believe that there is one God and that Jesus Christ is His only Son.

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity 

In the preface of his collected broadcast talks on the BBC, Lewis sets forth his intentions for writing the addresses. In one lengthy paragraph in which he addresses church denominations he makes a statement that is as relevant now as it was then. In an age when the blogosphere rages with theological disputes by amateurs and professionals alike, flinging their disputes around for everyone to see. From the sounds of it, Lewis would have found this most disturbing. 

Timothy Willard loves to sit with his wife by the bonfire and make up stories about Tom the Backyard-Badger for his three lovely daughters. When he's not carving up the Appalachian Mountains on his Salsa El Mariachi, you can find him busy writing a book, collaborating on a book, or reading a book written by someone dead and gone. Timothy studied beauty in the works of C.S. Lewis under theologian Alister McGrath. The author of five books, including Veneer: Living Deeply in a Surface Society (Zondervan), Timothy is currently finishing The Life-Changing Adventure of Chasing Beauty (Eerdmans, 2019), preparing his doctoral thesis for publication, and trying to find a publisher for his first novel The Tempest and the Bloom. He lives somewhere in the south Charlotte woods.
